Angelita Simonetti, an INSERM research scientist from the laboratory ARN, is distinguished this month by the RNA society. This expert in structural and molecular biology of the translation apparatus carries on her research in the “Structure & Dynamics of Molecular Biomachines” group. She focuses on translation initiation processes in bacteria and more recently in eukaryotes. The RNA society emphasizes that “her results have marked major steps forward in the understanding of the mechanism of translation initiation in various organisms”.
